A lot of people believe they have what it takes within them to negotiate. Probably that is true to a great extent, but organizing the skills and turning it into a process rather than an emotional activity makes it more consistent with a higher probability. Kexxel Group was very organized and very punctual. I really appreciate that because time is of the essence. Found everything very positive and I enjoyed the two days. Although to tell you the truth, before coming here, I thought I’m too old for a 2 day class but I guess not! Thank you very much Kexxel Group! The practices presented were very apt. Jim was a perfect mix of humour and a professional presentation! Everyone from Kexxel Group was so pleasant.
